1 PARAMEDIC REFRESHER TRAINING PROGRAM Ohio Approved Curriculum Instructor Course Guide Ohio Paramedic Refresher Approved Page 1

2 OHIO APPROVED PARAMEDIC REFRESHER TRAINING PROGRAM CURRICULUM The Ohio Paramedic is responsible for a wide range of knowledge and skills which includes material originally learned, as well as new information resulting from the constant growth and evolution of the field of emergency medical care. In order to maintain up-to-date proficiency, a Paramedic must regularly participate in educational programs which review the essential components of the Ohio approved curriculum as well as those which provide exposure to new knowledge and skills resulting from advances in emergency medical care. This document is an EMS instructor course guide for the Ohio Paramedic Refresher Training Program as approved by the State Board of EMS pursuant to chapter of the Ohio Administrative Code. The Ohio Paramedic Refresher Training Program is based on the National EMS Education Standards and standards adopted in rule by the EMS Board. In implementing the Ohio Paramedic Refresher Training Program, EMS instructors will develop learning objectives, lesson plans and identification of resources necessary to achieve the educational goals. The EMS instructor may wish to reference the Paramedic Instructional Guidelines approved by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA). Pursuant to ORC , each course offered through an emergency medical services training program or an emergency medical services continuing education program, other than ambulance driving, shall be developed under the direction of a physician who specializes in emergency medicine. Each course that deals with trauma care shall be developed in consultation with a physician who specializes in trauma surgery. COURSE OVERVIEW The Ohio Paramedic Refresher Training Program curriculum is the minimum acceptable content that must be included in any Ohio Paramedic Refresher Training Program. The didactic portion of the Ohio Paramedic Refresher Training Program may be taught through online or distance learning formats in accordance with OAC , however cognitive and psychomotor testing shall be conducted in a traditional classroom environment. The Ohio Paramedic Refresher Training Program consists of 48 classroom hours. The Ohio Paramedic Refresher Training Program is divided into the following subject areas and hours (including evaluations): Airway Management & Ventilation Medicine Cardiology Medical Emergencies Trauma Issues Special Populations Obstetrics & Gynecology Pediatric Issues Geriatric Issues EMS Operations 4 hours 6 hours 10 hours 8 hours 2 hours 12 hour 4 hour 2 hours Paramedics who successfully complete this course must demonstrate competency through written and practical testing over the knowledge and psychomotor skills outlined in this refresher training program prior to receiving a certificate of completion. NATIONAL REGISTRY OF EMERGENCY MEDICAL TECHNICIANS TRANSITION COURSE POLICY The Ohio Paramedic Refresher Training Program course curriculum is approved and adopted in rule by the Ohio board of Emergency Medical Services and meets the requirements of the NREMT-P to NR-PARAMEDIC transition policy. Ohio Paramedic Refresher Approved Page 2

3 EMS EDUCATION STANDARDS The EMS education standards are divided into three categories: Knowledge, Psychomotor and Clinical Behavior/Judgment. Some standards may be repeated in more than one unit. All standards refer to all patient age groups (pediatric, adult and geriatric) unless otherwise specified or appropriate. Patient assessment standards are grouped together in the curriculum for organization. It is expected that these standards will be covered in each section as appropriate. PERSONNEL Each course offered through an EMS training program or continuing education program shall be taught by a person who holds a certificate to teach issued under section of the Revised Code. An EMS Instructor must hold a current and valid certificate to practice and a certificate to teach issued by the State Board of EMS. An EMS Instructor may teach courses for initial certification and continuing education that are at or below the level of the instructor s certificate to practice. An Assistant EMS Instructor holds a current and valid certificate to practice and a certificate to teach issued by the State Board of EMS. All course instruction and preparation must occur under the mentorship of a certified EMS Instructor. An Assistant EMS Instructor may teach courses for initial certification and continuing education that are at or below the level of the instructor s certificate to practice. A Continuing Education Instructor may teach an EMS continuing education program at or below the level of the instructor s certificate ton practice. A Guest Lecturer may be used to bring a specific area of expertise to the classroom. Whenever a guest lecturer is used, a certified instructor must be present in the classroom. LESSON PREPARATION The instructor should be familiar with the subject area and the specific objectives of the subject area. Each instructor will incorporate their own personality and style into the lesson, but the goal of all instructors is to design an organized lesson that maximizes the students opportunity to achieve the stated standards. A lesson plan that outlines the goals, objectives, content, instructional materials and evaluation methods should be developed for each class session. The lesson plan may also provide a timeline for the appropriate flow of information. Presentation of lesson objectives may be accomplished by various methods, including lectures, small group discussion, and the use of audio-visual materials. EMS equipment is as an integral part of the classroom presentation and laboratory instruction. The instructor should assure that the necessary types of equipment, in appropriate amounts, are accessible to the students. The instructor should perform demonstrations prior to asking the student perform the skill. The instructor should supervise the students while they practice the psychomotor skills and should reinforce the progress of the student in all areas. The instructor: student ratio should be no more than 1:10 during these practice sessions. If there is difficulty understanding the content or performing the skills, the instructor should remediate as needed. NEEDS ASSESSMENT The first step in course planning is the performance of a comprehensive analysis of the many factors which influence the pre-hospital emergency care delivery system in the area. Factors which should be included in this analysis are: Recertification requirements (local and state) System structure Call characteristics (i.e., volume, type) Ohio Paramedic Refresher Approved Page 3

4 Community demographics Community hazard assessment The second step of the needs assessment is an analysis of the education needs of the potential course participants. Information obtained through the assessment process should be used as a guide to selection of specific material to be presented in the classroom, within the limitations imposed by local and state standards. The assessment results should also be used in determining course format, schedule, and methods. COURSE DESIGN Once the needs assessment has been performed, the following steps should be accomplished to design and implement the course: Course and sponsoring agency approval Hours, content, faculty requirements or restrictions in compliance with state requirements Identify and orient program staff (medical director and program coordinator) Identify and provide equipment sufficient for needs Determine class size Appropriate physical facilities based on class size Presentation can be individual lessons/units, or lessons/units can be combined in a variety of formats INSTRUCTIONAL APPROACH Given the repetitive nature of refresher education, it is easy for participants to become bored quickly and to lack enthusiasm about the program. In order to improve the quality of the educational experience for instructors and participants, creative and innovative instructional activities are strongly suggested. Cognitive: Participants in refresher programs have a wealth of experience to draw on and enjoy sharing it. Affective: A significant concern in EMS today is stress caused by a variety of factors including indifference to quality of education, poor community support, excessive demands on personal time and energy, too many or too few runs, or feelings of inadequacy when dealing with critical patients. Be aware of this and be prepared to provide additional assistance as needed. Psychomotor: Students rapidly lose interest in repetitive entry-level skills drills. Be creative and try new ideas. RECORDS MANAGEMENT The Ohio Paramedic Refresher Training Program must maintain program and student records which demonstrate compliance with rule of the Administrative Code. All class records are to be given to the program coordinator of the sponsoring institution, which will include the following: Program records Syllabus Course schedule Advertising materials Master attendance records Copies of exams, lesson plans, handout materials Records required by the local training institution and program coordinator Student records Attendance records Exam scores Ohio Paramedic Refresher Approved Page 4

5 Copies of exams Psychomotor skill evaluations EVALUATION OF STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT The primary purpose of refresher training is to assure that Paramedics maintain the knowledge and psychomotor competency which are pertinent to their scope of practice. The program standards identify these knowledge and psychomotor skill areas. Training programs must provide for regular evaluation of student performance and achievement through written and practical testing prior to issuance of a Certificate of Completion. In order to assure that each student has met the knowledge and psychomotor standards, it is necessary for the training program to use a variety of methods for testing and evaluation. If the devices used to measure student performance are faulty, then an accurate appraisal of student performance will be impossible. Written exams should be designed to measure critical components within the Paramedic knowledge base. The psychomotor skills examination should assess both component skills and the student's ability to apply necessary and appropriate skills to simulated patient care situations. Psychomotor skills proficiency should be measured at several points in the refresher program. The Certificate of Completion shall be issued to a student who has met the required program training hours and demonstrated competency as measured by formal and documented effective written and psychomotor skills evaluations. Students must attend all refresher training sessions for successful course completion. The certificate must be signed by the program coordinator of the sponsoring institution. PROGRAM EVALUATION Process evaluation will help identify specific causes of instructional failure (i.e., the reason why students fail to achieve satisfactory performance during the course). Some possible causes of such failure may include: Instructional activities do not conform to the lesson plans Resources, facilities, or materials are inadequate Instructor is not well qualified to teach a particular lesson Lack of student attendance and/or participation Students must be provided the opportunity to evaluate the class. These evaluations should be reviewed by the instructor(s) and program coordinator and used to develop a quality program. The on-going review of the course is part of the program coordinator s responsibilities. The review process will include the student evaluations, an evaluation by the instructional staff and an evaluation of the class by the program coordinator. If deficiencies are found, corrective measures must be taken. All documentation for the class must be submitted to and maintained by the program coordinator of the sponsoring institution.
